Pontiac's aggressively styled performance leader has been such a good seller that the model lineup has been expanded to six. The base Firebird, upscale Formula and top-of-the-line Trans Am each come in a choice of coupe or convertible. The Trans Am GT designation has been dropped. Competition for the expanded Firebird line now ranges from the Ford Mustang, Nissan 300ZX and Dodge Stealth to the Dodge Avenger. Power for the lineup of rear-drivers starts off with a 3.4-liter V6 hooked to a 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic for base Firebirds. But it's V8 power for Formula and Trans Am, with a 6-speed manual standard and the 4-speed automatic optional. The big news in hardware this year is the new traction control system that uses brake intervention and engine- torque reduction. The system is an option for all V8s. Also new for these models is a 16-in. 5-spoke cast aluminum wheel that will be available in chrome at midyear. A new all-weather 245/50ZR16 Eagle RSA tire is standard on Trans Am and an option on Firebird and Formula. Do-it-yourselfers will have one less thing to do, as all 'Birds now come with a totally maintenance-free front end. Standard equipment on all Firebirds includes dual airbags, ABS and an automatic brake/transmission interlock. Cruise control and power door locks come standard in all convertibles and Trans Ams, while a/c is standard on Formula and Trans Am. If you like your music in large chunks, a dealer- installed 12-disc CD changer is the option to go with after you sort through a variety of sound systems.
